because my hubby has discoid eczema. so my mum and mum in law always ask me watch my diet not to eat "heaty" food. worry that my baby has eczema too. but sometimes can't control myself also cannot blame me mah. haha. yaya. fast food i can eat 1 whole meal without vomiting! and sometimes i take bee tai mak. rice really no appetite for it. and i always drink cold water. zzz. must cut down on everything already. mum keep nag nag nag. haha.
yea! pinkdiamonds. hope i go 1st appointment can check gender already. cos by then i'll be around 15 weeks? hehe. hopefully!
I think most important thing now is to eat and actually keep the food inside. No point for you to try to eat healthy, but end up your vomit all the good food out right? Weight gain is more important. When your appetite is better, it's not too late to eat all the healthier food.
I think you should schedule your gynae appointment early as there are tests which can be taken in week 12. Otherwise the next time to take the test will be at week 20, but I'm not too sure. Better to call the clinic and check with them.
we tried to ask when doing the dear son scan on the 13th week on the gender. they never say. only say will know on the 20th week.
nowadays keep eating japanese food like udon and rice. dont't know is it because jap rice smell nicer and all along i love jap food. sushi i am ok. no vomit. *touchwood.
i have been drinking milk powder recently.
dear husband make for me at 10pm. so far so good. i finish half a tin of it.
yah. i've been taking folic acid since i knew i was pregnant. i went to gp and polyclinic ley. but they gave me this date. then my family says its fine. no need so early check up. o.o so i dont know how. may i know whats the down syndrome test about? i'm 21 this year. its a must to take?
We finally brought her to the polyclinic and was given a referral to the National Skin Centre. By that time it was so bad we had to swaddle her up so that she wouldn't rub or scratch the eczema. With the cream by the doctor it's much much better.
Later on we found out her eczema was the result of an allergy so I had to avoid taking egg when I was breastfeeding her. Now that she's older, she's slowly outgrowing it and her eczema is less serious.
Not to worry so much. Since you guys have eczema I'm quite sure you'll be able to identify if it happens and get doctor's help.
It can be outgrown when your baby gets older.
But of course hopefully your baby will avoid it!
hello everyone~ today went for my not scan and blood test.. didn't opt to do the OSCAR but my risk was well within the good range.
once again, my due date has moved forward.. its on the 21st Oct now. LOL! at least the gynae decided to make it fixed at 21st and no more changes.
Hi all.. m new here...my due is estimated around 23 Oct.. and this is my 13-14 wk.. just went for the down syndrome test and diabetes test... and just rcd call from doc saying my sugar level is high.. felt rather stressed.. i m scheduled to meet a dietitian next week and will have to start using some monitoring system which i suppose needs pricking..
Anyone has any knowledge about gestational diabetes....
Hi Magteo! Congrats on your pregnancy! I have no knowledge of gestational diabetes, but I'm sure there are available threads on this topic. Do keep us updated about what's going on!
Been awhile...kekeke... hope everyone is feeling much much better!
Recently, i had a weird dream...hahaha...perhaps due to anxiety and inexperience.... dreamt that the baby came out earlier than expected and nothing is ready and bought. Hahaha....nothing for him to wear, forgot to feed him, then realise i dont't know how to breast feed. Hahahaha...woke up in horror and went shopping immediately. Haha. did not't get anything but kinda know what baby uses. haha...the range is a so wide! OMG, the prices too. Hahaha... so any one has any idea what is te most essential for our new born, at least for the 1st to 6th month.
This sat, 24th, mu hubby and I are going for the 'Anmum' organised pregnacy and parenting talk in Suntec at 12pm. anyone of you guys going?
me feeling better. MS still comes and goes but not on daily basis. have slightly more energy now, but cannot really "fly" yet. hahaha. the other day while having a nap I dreamt that I gave birth to twin boys! Hoping for a girl + boy twin but will only find out in about 4 weeks. it's such a long wait.
recently went for my not test & blood test. not test went well. If clinic doesn't call me earlier to go down then I assume my blood test is okay too.
I feel like I also need to buy a lot of things, but it seems like I have most of what we need. It's endless. everytime you go shopping you keep wanting to buy more things!
hi mummies! just went to kk for my 1st check up ytd. doctor didnt say much. took urine test, ultra sound and blood test. now my arm bruise. nurse couldnt find my veins. haha. they didnt say much. saw my baby. so cute. haha. its around 15.5weeks. so my EDD has bring forward to 9th october. ^^ around my birthday too. haha. i didnt took up the down syndrome test cos doctor told me its only 50%-60% accurant and its not necessary for me. so decided to skip it.
total bill after subsidise is $100.70. should be for this time round only cos of so many test. my folic acid given by my gp is finishing already and ytd saw my baby thru ultrasound too happy until forget ask doctor for more. am i suppose to continue taking it or can stop after i finish it?
And i'm so keen and curious how my baby will look like. hahaha...dreamt of that too. A ridiculous one appeared, a real combination of individual features fr both me and hubby. Like those computerise put together. hahaha
For me the essentials are:
NB clothes, especially those with front button/snaps. - Baby's cord stump need tender care, plus neck not very strong yet, so not a good idea to get tops that need to wear thru the head.
Mittens & socks - personally I prefer socks to booties cause they not so easy to come off
Diapers - cloth or disposables up to you!
Wet wipes - to clean poo poo, but some mummies prefer to just rinse it at the basin.
Diaper cream - Desitin creamy is my recommendation.
Milk bottles - optional. If you wanna BF & you got sore nipples or what and want to express, you got a bottle.
Towels - bathtime!
Bathtub with stand - life saver for me. dont't need to bend down.
Swaddler - for me I used cloth nappies to wrap cause they r thin & cooling. If you sleep in air con room you can buy those swaddlers.
Cot + bedding - pillow is not necessary, but some will give those "donut" pillows. Quilt/blanket is not recommended due to risk of SIDS. for me I did use blanket, but I tucked it under the mattress so that it won't move & cover until slightly above baby's waist. However, based on experience I think if I use a sleeping bag or swaddler it should warm sufficiently, even with air con.
Sling/carrier - Didn't touch the pram until about 6 months old, unless I was going for grocery shopping or need to walk for very long. A carrier was good for me as baby felt comfortable sleeping inside & I didn't need to push a pram through crowded malls. If you push a pram into the lift pple kinda give you dirty look.
I personally dont't think any body wash is necessary for NBs, cause their skin is delicate & they're not active. So you dont't really need to "clean" them. Clear water should be fine. If you must you can get those PH balanced one. Strongly not recommend J & J, girl had irritated skin after that, and a lot of mummies also same problem.
I think these shld be sufficient for the first few months. Anything else can just get your husband to run a quick errand, or you can do it when you bring baby out for pediatrician appointments.
Hahaha...A very very big thk you to you! My gosh! Thats quite a list! i guess all the first time mummy here will be so thkful to you!
Thks thks thks!
i believe all mummies are already at 2nd tri, hope everyone is getting better from all the morning sickness.
i have been feeling very tired all the time and also getting heartburn and feeling tight around the chest area.
going for detail scanning on 25th may.
now tummy getting more obvious, now like a bit unbalance when walking
hubby ask our doc on the last visit , he say 90% confirm boy,
hope time can pass faster, can't wait to see dear son.
